Marathon Runners Conquer U-Mary Hill


It was a nice brisk morning for the Bismarck Marathon...

runners began at 7:30 AM and it was all uphill from there...

the University of Mary Hill that is.

Due to the flooding during the summer of 2011, the marathon course was revamped and included the long U-Mary hill into the route.

Many runners dread having to conquer this part of the race.

Others prove that it's not so bad going over the hill.

Huffing, puffing, and sweating all the way to the top...runners still say that infamous phrase...

"I made the hill!" says Marge Taylor.

The marathon will go back to its original course next year...hopefully good news for many yearly participants.
